sure, and i did not want to sound too critical. it's just that often, 
resource types (of a media type) do not have a 1:1 mapping with URIs, 
for example it would be perfectly possible to have image/video/audio 
showing up at the same "URI pattern" /evan/content. anyway, no need to 
dive down into this, and it's probably just my usual reflex whenever i 
see any documentation containing URI patterns...
